booboo130 -> Helicopters with On Call Orders (9/13/2018 1:28:08 PM)
When a helicopter is given On Call orders does it move on its own or must it first be in a position to see enemy forces? I'm trying out the scenario Dawn's First Light by playing both sides and want the Soviet helicopters to follow along behind the tank companies.

Best posture for non moving helicopters is Screen. On Call is better for artillery units since the FSCC (if turned on) can order fire missions. Screen places units in a defensive stance, some cover or masking for helos and gives the AI the flexibility to displace if under fire or threatened by a larger group of enemies.
